In commemoration of the International Women’s Day celebrated across the world on March 8, 2017 as well as the World Health day that was celebrated on 7th April 2017, the women at the National Institute for Legislative Studies (NILS), Led by its Director General, Dr Ladi Hamalai embarked on a charitable visit to the Kuje General Hospital, in Abuja.
The Director General and the women who were received by the Medical Director, Dr Egbi Tarbunde donated medical equipment and other items for the comfort of the patients and workers at the hospital.
In an interview, Dr Ladi Hamalai said that the gesture is born out of the need for individuals and organizations to rise up and contribute their quota to the society; she said people should not leave things to government alone and if every privileged citizen can give bit by bit of the societal requirements, a lot would be achieved in a short period of time while the development the country so much craves for will be realized soon enough.
Dr Hamalai who also promised to purchase a delivery bed as well as give the delivery room at the hospital a facelift, reiterated that the Institute whose mandate is to build the capacity of legislators through training, Bills analysis and drafting will assist in drafting bills that will in the long run standardize the health sector of the country.
She assures that the Legislators at the National Assembly who are touched by the plight of the citizens will do nothing short of creating a world class health system through relevant legislation and laws.
The Medical Director, Dr Tarbunde who informed that the hospital has not witnessed such an amazing gesture in the past four years was full of appreciation, while calling on other well-meaning Nigerians to follow suit by assisting the health sector.
Dr Hamalai, did not end the visit without supplying provisions and food items to a mother and her malnourished child, Patricia Madaki who was receiving treatment at the hospital.
